Manu on August 12th, 2014





Finally there is something new arrived at Studio Manu!

I’m so sorry for the little break here, it’s just because of the summer school break of our kids. While on the one side I can’t wait to get back to me daily routine on the other hand we just enjoy the time we have together and the summer this year is just wonderful, lots of adventures outside.

Not sure but I think after 4 weeks I was able to finish a new collection.
Amazing vintage style as usual with lots of awesome and unique elements in it.

The name of the new collection: *Back Then*

So here it goes:

Back Then Papers

Included are 10 beautiful textured papers created at 300 dpi.
Size is 12×12 (3600×3600 px).
Also included 10 extra papers in modified versions of the originals –

total 20 papers included.






Also included in this collection
Back Then – Clusters

A set of 6 Clustered Elements made with the *Back Then* Page Kit. ready for you to use.
Shadows already added.

6 Clusters come without frame and 6 Clusters come with already frame added.
So for your own creativity and needs you can choose your own frames or use the finished Frame Clusters.

Note: Photos used on the preview are not included in download.
These are added for preview purposes only!





Preview of Clusters without Frames:




Sample Page using the Clusters:





Here is a set of 4 Grunge (Distressed) Frames, perfectly coordinating with the *Back Then* Page Kit.




Add your photo behind the frame or use as stamps them to decorate your pages or the background paper.
Add any colour you wish or tecture, play with the blend mode to make them perfect for your project.

It’s really fun to play with them and you’ll see your pages are even more beautifully.
Look here at this sample page – I really enjoyed working with the frames:
